What to know about new Michigan assistant coach Akeem Miskdeen

Dusty May is hiring Georgia assistant coach Akeem Miskdeen (mis-cuh-deen) to fill one of three full assistant coaching slots on his staff. He’ll join former Oklahoma State head coach Mike Boynton Jr. on the bench with one spot left to fill. The news was first confirmed by The Athletic.

Miskdeen’s coaching journey has taken him all over the country. He starred at Queens University at the Division II level as a player and has had coaching stops at Hampton, Kent State, Florida Atlantic, Florida and Georgia. He played a part in NCAA Tournament berths at Hampton (twice) and Kent State during his assistant coaching stints.

“Akeem demonstrates all of the values that you look for in someone you want to work with,” Georgia head coach Mike White said in his former assistant coach’s bio. “He’s a great human being, relentless worker, good coach and recruiter but most of all a tremendous mentor to young men.”

Here’s what you need to know about the new Michigan assistant coach.

He’s worked with Dusty May before

Miskdeen isn’t coming over from Florida Atlantic, but he helped lay the foundation in Boca Raton. Miskdeen was on May’s original staff and spent three seasons with him building the foundation of the Owl program. From there, he joined Mike White’s staff at Florida before following White to Georgia.
